1 Shot Dead, 6 Injured At Oakland Juneteenth Celebration, Watch How EMTs Get Treated Upon Arrival To Help

An Oakland Juneteenth celebration at Lake Merritt turned deadly after a shooting left one person dead and six others injured.

Authorities say the shooting occurred on Lakeshore Avenue at Lake Merritt just after 6PM at a crowded Juneteenth celebration of approximately 1,000 people.  It is unclear how the shooting began.

A 22-year-old man was pronounced dead at the hospital and the other victims are reported to be in stable condition.

Oakland Police arrested two suspects running from the scene, armed with handguns.  Investigators are determining if they were the shooters.

When police and paramedics arrived on the scene, people can be seen dancing around an ambulance and a man can be seen standing on top of the ambulance throwing a football to the crowd.

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf released the following statement Saturday:

“Tonight a joyous occasion at our Lake Merritt was marred by a senseless act of gun violence. Police in the area tended to victims, and apprehended two people with firearms near the scene. The investigation is ongoing and will determine if they are connected to the shooting. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victims, and I want to thank our officers for a quick response.”
